    1 Hour Webinar with Maris Hawkins

    Are you familiar with the name Maris Hawkins? Maybe you’ve noticed excited chatter about the book Common Ground popping up on social media? Or heard Maris interviewed on a podcast or give a conference presentation?

Mark your calendars for January 28th and spread the word to your fellow NNELL members or organize a watch party with others in your area! You could even win your own copy of Common Ground!
